OSLO -- BP Norge has contracted Aker Solutions for sub-surface consultancy services for its operation on the Norwegian shelf.

Under the three-year agreement, Aker Solutions' geo business will deliver operational geology services from BP's onshore facility in Stavanger, and wellsite geology services from BP's assets offshore Norway.

"The agreement covers support to the production drilling activities at BP's Skarv field [in the Norwegian Sea], which will ensure a steady flow of work for us over the coming years,” says Erik Sverre Jenssen, president of Aker Solutions’ geo business. "This is the first time BP is buying wellsite geology services from us," he adds.

Aker Geo delivers services through the whole subsurface chain, from exploration to production, via a team of 60 geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers. Its main areas of activity are geological and geophysical interpretation, petrophysics, reservoir modeling and simulation, wellsite geology, and production technology and operations.
